Helle Thorning-Schmidt: Danish PM falls after Paris unity rally
Danish PM Helle Thorning-Schmidt was among more than 40 world leaders marching arm in arm during Sunday’s historical rally in Paris after multiple acts of violence by Islamic extremists.
But Helle Thorning-Schmidt, 48, had trouble exiting the steps at the Elysee Palace and fell to the ground.
The Danish prime minister was photographed tumbling down the steps of the Elysee Palace on January 11 while wearing a long purple coat and black heeled boots.
The pictures show Helle Thorning-Schmidt walking down the steps perfectly fine but then losing her balance as she heads towards the bottom. She fell forward onto the concrete ground but her hands and knee stopped the fall.
Helle Thorning-Schmidt appeared to be OK as she was helped back up to her feet.
